This thesis is a study of three categories of problems in fermionic systems for which topology plays an important role: (i) The properties of zero modes arising in systems of fermions interacting…

Emergent Gapless Fermions in Strongly-Correlated Phases of Matter and Quantum Critical Points

- Physics

States with gapless degrees of freedom are typically more complicated and less wellunderstood than systems possessing a gap. In this thesis, we study strongly-correlated systems described by gapless…

Realizing non-Abelian statistics in time-reversal-invariant systems

- Physics, Mathematics

We construct a series of $(2+1)$-dimensional models whose quasiparticles obey non-Abelian statistics. The adiabatic transport of quasiparticles is described by using a correspondence between the…

This article presents a brief survey of some recent experiments in the hole-doped cuprate superconductors, and interpret the properties of the pseudogap regime in the framework of the FL* theory, which also has long-lived electron-like quasi-particles around a Fermi surface.

Abelian Chern-Simons-Maxwell theory from a tight-binding model of spinless fermions.

- Physics, MedicinePhysical review letters
- 2013

It is shown how the Thirring model manifests itself in the low energy limit of a two-dimensional tight-binding model of spinless fermions, and for specific values of the couplings the model exhibits the confining (2+1)-dimensional QED phase or a topological ordered phase that corresponds to the Chern-Simons theory.

Minimal models for a superconductor-insulator conformal quantum phase transition

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2013

Conformal field theories do not only classify two dimensional (2D) classical critical behaviour, but they also govern a certain class of 2D quantum critical behaviour. In this latter case, it is the…

Anyons in a weakly interacting system

In quantum theory, indistinguishable particles in three-dimensional space behave in only two distinct ways. On interchange, their wavefunction maps either to itself if the particles are bosons, or to…

Topological quantum phase transitions in topological superconductors

In this paper we show that BF topological superconductors (insulators) exibit phase transitions between different topologically ordered phases characterized by different ground-state degeneracy on…

A theory of 2+1D bosonic topological orders

- Physics

In primary school, we were told that there are four phases of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. In college, we learned that there are much more than four phases of matter, such as hundreds of…
